Info About My DVDs Being Pirated
I truly believe that most folks are honest. However, it has come to my attention that there are people who have purchased only one copy of all of my Video DVDs and are duplicating, renting or selling those illegal copies. I have never sold multiple copies to these individuals. They are also copying informational text, my biography, paintings and photos from my website and are pasting these copyrighted items onto their add pages for rent or sale. Please be alert to anyone renting or selling numerous copies of the same title.

Several years ago, these people were duplicating and selling on eBay. If you find any of my DVDs offered on ebay or any other market, that you are suspicious of, I would greatly appreiate it if you email me at williampowellstudio@gmail.com. I will (without involving you) immediately investigate that auction, seller, rentor. Ebay is very cooperative about this. I greatly appreciate your assistance in helping to put an end to this pirating of DVDs.

Some illegal rentors / sellers also have an inventory of DVDs from many artists and are doing the same to them. I have attempted to notify these other artists so they might also investigate this illegal practice against them.

Thank you for your help,

William F. Powell
